I spilled very hot coffee on my upper thigh and it's very red and now has a few blisters.  Should I see a doctor?

Water: Use lots of cool water. Second degree burn will be painful but will heal in 2 weeks. A bioclusive or tegaderm membrane on it will stop the pain and promote healing. Avoid antibiotics on the burn or by mouth. Do not bother with a Dr unless you know one with experience treating burns. Very few Drs do. ...Read more

By : By the date of this post almost a week has passed. I hope you have visited your daughter's pediatrician for this problem, as well as your doctor. It is difficult to say without actually seeing the lesions what the problem is. Common causes of rashes like this are coxsackie virus, herpes virus, varicella virus, etc. Your daughter's pediatrician should be able to make a diagnosis and give you a treatment plan. I hope all is well. ...Read more

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but i don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

The : The rash associated with lyme disease is called erythema migrans and it looks like a target or bulls-eye. It usually starts at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days after the bite (average 7 days) and then can spread to other parts of the body. The rash typically doesn't last more than a month and is rarely itchy. An itchy rash appearing 6 months after a tick bite would not be related to lyme disease. Other kinds of ticks can spread other organisms besides lyme such as "southern tick associated rash illness" or rocky mountain spotted fever, so if you think you have an abnormal rash related to a previous tick bite, contact your doctor. Below i've attached a website with tons of good information on lyme disease. Good luck! ...Read more

Left leg pain, above ankle and upper thigh, side, comes and goes.  Been 5 days.  Im worried for a blood cloth. What symtops are for dvt? Er?!

Unlikely to be DVT .: DVT is usually characterized by aching pain in the entire limb and 5 days after the onset would also show swelling of the leg extending proximally. The limb may also feel warm and tender. Since certain medications, pregnancy and trauma may also predispose, would look into these.
